Upcoming Webinar: Storage and Preservation of Paper Records

You have a sneaking suspicion that your local government is not quite up to snuff when it comes to your legal responsibility to properly store paper records. You’ve seen a few boxes sitting on the floor and have often wondered if those fire sprinklers even work. You’re almost positive that you heard a mouse skittering about in the dark corner of the records room the other day, but you certainly weren’t going to investigate. Frankly, when you think about storage, you feel overwhelmed and are not sure where to begin or how.

Does this sound even a little bit like your situation? Then our upcoming webinar, “Storage and Preservation of Paper Records” is designed especially for you! This webinar discusses legal standards for the storage of paper records and explores practical solutions for implementing them. We will also cover how to engage your staff in the storage and preservation of documents and the cost-benefit analysis of long-term storage for non-permanent and non-essential documents. The legal requirements are published in Bulletin F and applicable only to local governments, but state governments are encouraged to use the Bulletin F as guidelines for best practices.

Some of topics of discussions will include:

  • Minimum standards for storage – Did you know that every local government must meet these minimum standards for storage in order to be in compliance with the law? Do you know if you have met the standards in full? We’ll help you figure out what is great about your storage solutions and what needs some work.
  • How to Conduct A Site Survey – We’ll go over some helpful hints about how to conduct a site survey and how to identify potential hazards or trouble spots for your records.
  • Preservation of paper records – Is your office taking the best care possible of fragile paper records? We’ll go over best practices for keeping your paper records preserved and usable for as long as possible!
  • Audience Q&A – We’ll have plenty of time for questions, so if there’s something you’ve always wondered about, bring it to the webinar!

While Bulletin F is only legally binding for local governments, we often encourage state agencies to use these guidelines as best practices, so this webinar is for everyone!

  1. Quite a coincidence that you mentioned fire sprinklers… what fire sprinklers. We had similar questions regarding the fire extinguishers stored on the same basement floor as these files. Recorded during a site survey several years ago and converted from VHS tape to CD format:
